As the title states, if you have any resources that could be helpful to other members tell us about it. And I mean any resource, be it book, site, tutorial or otherwise.

All links found in this thread have been edited into the original post.

Tutorial funhouse

Clothing references

Gothic lolita clothing references

Cyber-punk clothing references

Otaku clothing references

Short hair references

Wrinkles and Drapery reference

This one is very good in my opinion. You must know anatomy.

Good idea Aether!
I think you should take the useful links from the posts and edit them into the first post for convenience's sake. I mean, it could end up being a lot of scrolling.

Anyway, this is one of the best (or at least best remembered) paneling tutorials I've ever had the pleasure of reading.

Good place to look at if youre looking for urban clothes to give to a character or something else, either way it could be helpful to someone else.

Only a little (or a lot) creepily otaku-y to use this. http://www.style-arena.jp/
Hair! http://www.short-hairstyles.com/
I always have trouble making up hairstyles, so this helps.
